Name a couple of albums covers that you think the artwork is great. I know there will be a lot of Yes album cover mentioned. Two that stick out to me are both by Traffic, Low Spark of High Heeled Boys and Shootout at Fantasy Factory. But EAP is also one fav because of its simplicity.

Led Zeppelin II - all the moving parts!
Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers - only cover with a functioning zipper
Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick - the entire newspaper parody thing!

Pretty much any of the Yes covers. Any other band that Roger Dean did the art for.

It’s A Beautiful Day.

Stone the Crows has some good ones too.

On the risqué side, there’s Mom’s Apple Pie.

Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath had some great covers. For Floyd, I'm thinking the cover of Wish You Were Here and Animals, and for Sabbath, I love the covers of the Dio era band as well as the truly creepy cover of Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

Jefferson Airplane's Long John Silver album. The album cover folded into a replica of a cigar box. When you opened the cover and lifted the image of the cigars it uncovered a photo of a box full of weed.

Always thought Santana had some great album covers, particularly Abraxas and Santana 3.
